Learn to Code SQL Example – SQL | EXISTS

(SQL Example for Citizen Data Scientist & Business Analyst)



The EXISTS condition in SQL is used to check whether the result of a correlated nested query is empty (contains no tuples) or not. The result of EXISTS is a boolean value True or False. It can be used in a SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT or DELETE statement.


SELECT column_name(s) 
FROM table_name
  (SELECT column_name(s) 
   FROM table_name
   WHERE condition);

Consider the following two relation “Customers” and “Orders”.



  1. Using EXISTS condition with SELECT statement
    To fetch the first and last name of the customers who placed at least one order.

    SELECT fname, lname 
    FROM Customers 
                  FROM Orders 
                  WHERE Customers.customer_id = Orders.c_id);


  2. Using NOT with EXISTS
    Fetch last and first name of the customers who has not placed any order.

    SELECT lname, fname
    FROM Customer
                      FROM Orders 
                      WHERE Customers.customer_id = Orders.c_id);


  3. Using EXISTS condition with DELETE statement
    Delete the record of all the customer from Order Table whose last name is ‘Mehra’.

    FROM Orders
                  FROM customers
                  WHERE Customers.customer_id = Orders.cid
                  AND Customers.lname = 'Mehra');
    SELECT * FROM Orders;


  4. Using EXISTS condition with UPDATE statement
    Update the lname as ‘Kumari’ of customer in Customer Table whose customer_id is 401.

    UPDATE Customers
    SET lname = 'Kumari'
                  FROM Customers
                  WHERE customer_id = 401);
    SELECT * FROM Customers;
